Costume Mood Board: 1920s The Great Gatsby

I’m super obsessed with the 20s. Something about style, hair, and oh my gosh talk about a cardio workout that was the dance of the day. All that hopping, kicking, flapping about, those dancers were in great shape. I’m beyond psyched to see Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby. I think I’m going to convince a few of my friends to dress up and see the movie with me. So, here’s a mood board to kick things off. Keep flapping. XOXO, Brandie

Costume MoodBoard: Native American

Hello, hello. Here’s the latest costume we’re working on. Elemental Remix will be performing at the SF Pride Parade on the Asian & Pacific Islander LGBT Stage on Sunday, June 24. And, we’re also performing at Mission in the Mix for Micaya on Saturday, June 23 & 24! Rock star triple performance weekend. Since, Pride weekend brings all sorts of characters and costumes (or lack thereof), I thought it would be fun to have a theme. So, we’re going with Native American. I love the look of feathers, teal, and that moccasin brown with a little hit of black or ivory. Loving all the face paint examples here. Especially since we’ll have 11 girls performing–how hot is that walking around with a tribe?! Anywooooo, enjoy!

Costume MoodBoard: Big Cats Costume

Happy Monday, all! This is part 2 of the Big Cats and Lion Tamers costumes for my intermediate/ advance hip hop piece. This particular one will have to be crafted together. The inspiration and basic idea of where the faux fur will be located is on the image below, top left. Joann’s fabrics has about 10 different animal prints in faux fur. I’m thinking a few yards per dancer to wrap around legs, at wrists, around the skirt, and some faux fur to attach to the black headband to create ears. (Will do a tutorial for this! Coming soon.) One thing I’d like all the dancers wearing the cat costume is to have the black top from Forever 21 (in the style deals, only $4.50). I love the back detail, also will need to wear a black spaghetti strap tank underneath. For the skirt, I want something short and A-line (from H & M $17.95). Nothing too fitted, because when we add the faux fur you’ll need to be able to move–faux fur doesn’t stretch at all. Will post more photos as we make the costumes. Keep dancin’

Costume list: black top from F21, black spaghetti strap tank, black A-line skirt, black headband, black socks, and black shoes. *I will pick up fabric.
